Weekly newspaper journalists made their TV bow after helping a comedian complete work experience at their office.
While at the Journal, his hometown newspaper, Rhod met then-editor Emma Bryant, below, and was asked to find a front page story by a 4pm deadline.
Emma, who has moved on to an NHS PR role since the episode was filmed, warned Rhod the Journal might miss an edition “for the first time in 205 years” if he didn’t return with a good enough story.
Rhod was then dropped off at a car park in Lampeter where, after scouring the town’s streets, he found a story about a mysterious bell ringer playing with church bells in the early hours of the morning.
He then called Emma to tell her the tale, which she described as “very unusual and quirky”.
During a news conference, Rhod then pitched headline ideas for his story including ‘What the bell is going on?’, ‘Two girls woken by massive dong’ and ‘Where will it all bell end?’.
None of his suggestions featured in the final piece, which did provide a splash for the Journal.
After thanking the newspaper, Rhod went on to spend time with BBC Wales later in the episode, which aired on Tuesday night.
